After continuing to watch our piss poor defense I have come to the conclusion that despite out crappy LB play, much of that will be remedied with the return of Jon Beason. Despite our crappy DT play, I think that will be remedied with the young guys getting another year under their belt and the return of Edwards. I like our options at DE with Johnson, Hardy, and Applewhite.
Our offense is clicking and IDT we can spend yet another 1st round pick on an OT only a few years after picking Otah. If we want to cut bait then thats fine but don't waste a 1st rounder replacing him...just suck it up.
Bottom line is that we are still in a division with Matt Ryan and Drew Brees. We need guys that can cover. So if one of the CBs explodes then that is the pick you go with. Claiborne has great size and someone compared him to Woodson the other day on TV...which I like. If he is gone and we have a chance at Blackmon or Jeffery (whoever looks to be better then gotta consider it...too talented not to). If all 3 of those guys are gone then start thinking about the best LB or possibly moving down to acquire more picks.
I'm in line with your thinkin'
